Fall Tonight

Do you see me standing there
At the end of your tunneling vision
Staring you down like an opponent of war
Waiting for a better reason

To step back into the shadows
To fade out of your sight
If I ever existed you'll never know
Cause I never belonged by your side

Can you hear me whisper
To your picture in my hands
Wishing the image was crisper
To capture your beauty is too much to ask

I know these words are hallow
And your still in the dark
But of these feelings I'll never show
Because I can't watch you fall apart

Not now in this empty house
These rooms are dim and cool
Oh how I miss having you around
But I guess it was me who was the fool

Flesh to flesh is a memory of yesterday
Which I'll hold dear now that we're gone
But with every moment we fade away
And there will be nothing left of us come dawn

Don't squint you're eyes in the candle light
For I'm nowhere to be seen
I know you grow stronger with every night
But in the morning we will cease to be

So hold my hand for one last dusk
But keep me locked in your mind
I was never here for you to trust
I'm betraying nothing by falling behind

You're just as elusive as I might seem
More perfect than I can ever be
Someday you'll find I was just a dream
But better nightmares you'll never see

Look now the sun is rising
so long and good day my love
I doubt you'll find this surprising
But now that I'm gone this has just begun

My Dear Stranger! Muse has definitely smiled on you and no doubt that Imagination, Eloquence, and Creation are all in love with you.
Heheh. In other words, I loved it. Wink

The Domino Effect

The dominos are falling
And the rain is pouring down
The engines of our minds are stalling
And everything we know is about to be burned to the ground

The puzzle is coming together
And the pieces fall into place
The prophets are saying forever
As god kills off the human race

The pictures we're painting are smudging
The colours we speak will fade
As love and hate are judging
The decisions and mistakes that we've made

The towers we built are crumbling
The paint on our hearts is chipped
As the steps we take send us stumbling
Into a life for which we are ill equipped

The sculptures we've molded are sinking
Into a sea of sand and blood
We slaughter one another without even thinking
The consequences may not be what we want

The friendships we've made are breaking
As a thing called love is forgotten
We're losing the things we spent a lifetime making
And realize this world in which we live is rotten

We give our lives for remembrance
In hope that someone will cry
To give this life some meaning or semblance
So these mistakes won't be made after we die

In Too Deep

It's cold and lonely where I lay
In this grave I've dug so deep
Buried so far from yesterday
Yet to lost in thought to fall asleep

Is there warmth found in open arms
Somewhere far that I've failed to see
In this hole I can do no harm
But I'm too far under for you to reach

Of stones and statues and words so sweet
Surrounding my place of rest
With sounds of waves and busy streets
And all the places I'd thought I knew best

Whether I was wished into solitude
Or it was a path I chose to take
I don't expect those of my past to intrude
For even if it was my doing this is no mistake

If I had wings I may take to flight
And escape this cage I've locked myself in
But I see no reason to take up the fight
When this is where I belong in the end

Who needs to breathe or feel or hope
Who needs a place or a person to call home
We only want these things to cope
But need them or not I was always alone

My eyes will fall shut and I'll fade away
I've waited to long for a dreamless sleep
There's no need for rescue there's nothing to say
Because this grave is mine and I dug it deep

Live Long

It's cold inside this world of mine
And darker than you've seen
But given the choice of where to reside
There's nowhere I'd rather be

It's not like I know how sunlight feels
Blue skies are all the same
The only thing I can be sure is real
Is the darkness from which I came

Take your dreams you're smiles and sex
That's not where I belong
No I'm not trying to feign innocence
I'm just trying to prove myself wrong

Who gives flowers as gifts with petals so red
When they're meant to lie on your grave
In funeral homes not by hospital beds
How many lives do you think they have saved

The shadows are more alluring than bright sunlit skies
And dreams heard more often than prayers
Why run away or try to hide
There's no need to flee nor to be scared

You can keep your words your grievances and scars
I have my own there to remind
Of better days and winning wars
And drugs and drinks I want to deny

So whisper your nightmares into diary pages
Your words will never reach my ears
Notebooks and sketchpads can be your stage
But to be your audience is not why I'm here

Leave me to my lonely musings
My cobwebs and ghosts and my skeletons
I embrace what I've done I know there's no excusing
These sins are mine and I've only just begun
